HOUSTON -- The Houston Independent School District, along with county and city officials, will be distributing thousands of free school uniforms to students at seven locations across the city from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Friday and Saturday.

"It was a tragedy for everyone but these kids have lost more," HISD Board Trustee Wanda Adams said. "They've lost school supplies, clothes, homes. We have to help them build back, so team HISD is making sure they have everything they need when they return to school Sept. 11th"

HISD officials said students must be present to be fitted in order to receive clothing. HISD has relaxed its school uniform policy until January 2018, but students may wear uniform clothing to school if they have purchased or received those items.

"Our No. 1 priority is getting these kids back [and] making sure they are educated and providing an environment where they can learn," Adams said.
